Check In Procedure Back to Top

Welcome! Please arrive at 3pm or later on your check-in day. Upon driving into camp, to check-in, call or text the head ranger (Matt Branson at 618-402-7800) to let him know you arrived.  If you know where you are camping, go straight to your campsite.  If you do not know where you are camping, the ranger will meet you at the ranger station (the first building you see entering camp), and lead you to your site.  The ranger will maintain social distance when interacting with you, for everyone's safety. 

Check Out Procedure Back to Top

Please be out of your site by 11am on your last day.  To check-out, you will call the ranger right before you leave the property.  If the ranger does not hear from you by noon, s/he will visit your site to check in on you.

Cancellation Policy Back to Top

Full refunds will be given for all day, overnight, and program reservations when they are canceled one week, or more, in advance of the visit. If reservations are canceled in the week prior to the start of the reservation, no refund will be given, but the funds can be transferred to a future Outdoor Family Experience reservation, if desired.   In the event of severe weather that cancels a program reservation like boating, swimming, horseback riding, and climbing, full refunds will be given or transferred to future event, if desired.  To request a refund, email camping@stlbsa.org with the reservation number and reason for the refund.
